Ten thousand years ago, as the last ice age ended, many animals became extinct. However, the dog, elephant and lion carry on for their departed kin: the dire wolf, woolly mammoth and saber-tooth tiger. The plains of North America once hosted bison with horns that spanned seven feet and elk with ten-foot antlers. But so much expenditure on sexual displays cost them dearly when the weather warmed and human hunters arrived. During the ice age, elephants with enormous tusks ranged into Eurasia and North America, but today their descendants in Africa face the threat of extinction. Rhinos were abundant ten millennia ago and now all five species are gravely endangered. Meanwhile, hippos, crocodiles, leopards and wild dogs survived the ice age with little or no change to their basic design. This programme spans the globe paying testament to those species that have survived the ice age while also reflecting back on the lives of their descendants.
